UnCruise Adventures and Hapag-Lloyd to Require COVID Booster Shot
UnCruise Adventures said that boosters for eligible guests will be required starting Feb. 5. Royal Caribbean-owned German luxe brand Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will mandate boosters for guests 18 and older, beginning Feb. 14.
"We are aware of the additional CDC focus on larger cruise lines and variants, and we continue to take a safe and practical approach to every step of our small-vessel experience," UnCruise said. "We've successfully operated in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii during Covid, and recent experience has proven a recipe for limited transmission with variants thus far. We require full vaccination to board, including a booster for all of those who are eligible, along with a negative molecular Covid test."
